GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

MTV spoke with "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn on the red carpet for "Thor: The Dark World" about a myriad of topics -- including casting Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon.

"I'm a very controlling guy. [Rocket Raccoon] is a big one for me, and I have very specific ideas about what Rocket Raccoon is like," Gunn told MTV. "[Cooper] lets me push him any which way to get where I want to go. He does not give up. He sits there in the studio all day long until his voice is sore and his eyes are bloodshot, and he's bleeding from his nose and ears. But he's turned in some good raccoon voices, so who cares?"

The video also has a spoiler for the post-credits scene of "Thor: The Dark World," which Gunn directed, so watch with caution.

Crave Online also spoke with Gunn, mostly about

"It fits into our overall story of what's going on. I had talked to Kevin about it," Gunn said of the post-credits scene. "[We] decided what the basics of it were going to be and tried to figure it out. It was really quick. It was late that we decided to put it on the movie. I mean really late. It wasn't that long ago that we shot it."

HOURMAN

DC Comics has yet another television show in development. The CW has begun development on "Hourman," based on the DC Comics character of the same name. The show will reportedly center around a pharmaceutical analyst who gains the ability to see one hour into the future, and strives to right disastrous events before they come to pass in order to win back his son and his ex-wife.

"Hourman" is one of four new shows announced as in-production over the last few months. Others include "Arrow" spinoff "The Flash"; Fox's "Gotham"; and David S. Goyer's "Constantine."

THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige spoke with Ain't It Cool News about an array of topics including bringing Alan Taylor on to direct "Thor: The Dark World."

"Part of what Alan brought to the party, and part of what we structured the production around was practical locations," Feige told AICN. "Whether it was Iceland filming the Dark World sequences or Borehamwood outside of London for the opening sequences with Thor, or shooting London for London. We shot Albuquerque for New York and Cleveland for New York in 'Avengers.' It felt fun to shoot a city for the actual city in this movie. Even Asgard was built on plates of Norwegian landscapes that we went out and filmed. While most of those landscapes were ultimately replaced with Asgard itself, the camera moves in those plates and some of the cloud layers in those plates were real and helped add, I hope, to a sense that this is a real place."
